Carbon Robotics Low-cost Robot Arm

Carbon Robotics has built KATIA, a low-cost robotic arm that has the capabilities of an industrial arm, but the price and usability of a laptop. KATIA can be mounted to an electric wheelchair to serve as a virtual prosthetic arm that accompanies the person at all times, helping interact in both home and work environments.

KATIA can pick items off the floor, assist in personal grooming, and perform any number of tasks that would normally require assistance from a caregiver.
